Amazon’s fulfilment centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield has once again demonstrated unwavering commitment and generosity by extending a helping hand to Portland Charity, furthering their transformative impact on the lives of people with disabilities in Nottinghamshire.

In August and September, the Amazon team this time ventured into the Independent Living facilities to undertake a transformation of their flats and communal areas. Armed with paintbrushes and artistic flair, the dedicated team breathed new life into the spaces, complemented by a sleek upcycling of furniture, creating a modern and refreshed look.

Independent Living Manager, Maggie Waring, expressed her gratitude, stating, “The communal area has now been transformed into a warm, family lounge. We are very grateful for Amazon’s support and look forward to welcoming them back.”

But the Amazon team’s commitment hasn’t stopped at physical transformations. Over the last couple of months, they’ve made various donations to support Portland Charity, providing a treasure trove of goodies that have been distributed across the organisation. These donations have supported learners and citizens alike, with some goodies used as prizes for the fundraising tombolas and Portland Pop Up Shop that the Charity has set up internally for their staff.

Amazon Sutton-in-Ashfield has also played a pivotal role in ensuring the success of last year’s Christmas Market at their Santa’s grotto, by providing presents to the lucky children who got a chance to visit the big man himself, providing a real sense of Christmas joy!

Sean Montgomery works at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield and is a volunteer with Portland Charity. He said: “At Amazon, we are proud to have supported Portland Charity this year. We have witnessed the amazing work the charity does and the positive impact it has on learners and the wider community. We are honoured to be part of Portland’s journey and look forward to our continued partnership.”

Vivek Khanka, General Manager at Amazon Sutton-in-Ashfield, added: “It has been a pleasure to support Portland Charity this year. Sean and our team of volunteers are passionate supporters of the charity and we’re proud to support the positive impact they have on our community.” The Amazon fulfilment centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield continues to stand as a beacon of support for Portland Charity, making a lasting impact on the community and demonstrating the importance of corporate social responsibility. The ongoing collaboration between Amazon and Portland Charity is a testament to the positive change that can be achieved when businesses and charities join forces for a common goal.
